Have you ever wanted to prosper? Have you ever wanted to be influential, making an impact on society? Has there ever been a time when you wanted to be recognized for your character? I am not sure if Hezekiah ever thought those thoughts, but in his life these came true.
“And in every work that he [Hezekiah] began in the service of the house of God, and in the law, and in the commandments, to seek his God, he did it with all his heart, and prospered.” (2 Chronicles 31:21 KJV)
King Hezekiah had previously revived the Passover ceremonies, leading to a revolution in his nation. In this chapter we find him reappointing people to run the temple services, and calling for the appropriate things to be provided for these workers. And guess what? They received abundantly more than was needed! There were “heaps” left, for which storehouses had to be made.
Now how did Hezekiah just walk up, say a few things, and start a mass movement? The answer is he didn’t. Remember what that verse said? “And in every work that he began in the service of the house of God . . . he did it with all his heart, and prospered.” He put all of his heart into it, doing it for God, and he prospered.
You may be just a man, but if you put your heart and soul into God’s service, He can work mighty things.
